I See A Clown…


Sad Clown

I see a clown
with a very wide smile
who slips and falls
in a goofy little style
he walks around
for the fun he brings
all at once
juggling so many things

Yet

I see a clown
with a forced wide smile
who has a ย life
buried in a pile
after spreading smiles
before he sleeps
all night long
he cries and weeps

Yet Again

I see a clown
who smiles and cries
for his awful job
putting pain in disguise
andย no matter how hurt
he may be inside
he has to look happy
for the world outside

So

I see a clown
who entertains you and me
but behind his makeup
pain is all I see
stories of his past
that no one shares
memories of his life
that no one cares

    i think this life story is our own we all hide a clown in ourselves in an array of respected roles no one can dare calling us clown but actually we are from inside entertaining the people around us whether we like it or not.

    • Oh ashi you caught the exact message of the poem. We are clowns one way or the other. We wear make up of happy disguises and hide our pains. Wow, you did an amazing job reading it ๐Ÿ™‚
